In this paper, a novel and recently developed algorithm which is inspired by the natural foraging phe-nomenon of the flying squirrel named as Squirrel Search Algorithm is used and it is hybridized with arithmetic crossover operation to enhance its effectiveness and be used for solving the single objectives optimal power flow problem (OPF) of the power system. So, the proposed algorithm is named the Hy-brid Flying Squirrel Search Algorithm (HFSSA). The capability and performance of the proposed algo-rithm are observed on benchmark test functions and on the IEEE-30 bus system. Generation fuel cost, emission, and transmission losses are considered as objectives of an optimal power flow problem. The obtained results will be compared with the existing literature to justify the supremacy of the proposed method
